For years now, Denverites have flocked to Santa Fe Drive for the First Friday Artwalk to peruse the galleries there. Or, maybe they go for the free wine and appetizers? Either way, Denver’s galleries don’t start and stop on Santa Fe. The next time you want to get your art on, veer east.

Neopolitan

3107 E Colfax Ave
Denver, CO 80206
(303) 362-0199
www.neopolitanartandgifts.com

Neopolitan features art and gifts from emerging local artists only. Make an appointment, stop by any Saturday between 12 p.m.-6 p.m., or on the second Saturday of the month between 7-10 p.m. during the Bluebird District Second Saturday Artwalks. Take the time to admire their featured jewelry, photography, body products (yes, lotions and such), plus a variety of other items sure to put your senses on high.

Rule Gallery

227 Broadway
Denver, CO 80238
(303) 777-9473
www.rulegallery.com

Bringing national art to Denver’s small art scene, Rule Gallery has a welcomed modern feel-quite a juxtaposition to the otherwise antique-prominent Broadway. The gallery has hosted rotating exhibitions since 1987. Open Tuesday through Saturday from 12 p.m.-5 p.m., stop by Rule every one to two months to experience a new set of contemporary pieces.

Plus Gallery

2501 Larimer St
Denver, CO 80205
(303) 296-0927
www.plusgallery.com

Plus Gallery sits in Five Points in the area known as the River North Arts District (RINO). The building itself is a site worth seeing, but the true draw is the progressive contemporary artists it features from Colorado and the Rocky Mountain Region. Visit on Wednesdays through Saturdays from 12 p.m.-5 p.m. or on Friday evenings from 7-10 p.m. Plus Gallery hosts periodic events, which you can usually find on their website.

Robischon Gallery

1740 Wazee Street
Denver, CO 80202
(303) 298-7788
www.robischongallery.com

Step inside and for a moment you might forget that you are in Denver. Robischon Gallery takes you to a new place; a place of international progressive art that you would likely see on one of the coasts, not our burgeoning Midwestern city. Open Tuesday through Friday from 11 a.m.-6 p.m. and Saturday from 12 p.m.-5 p.m.
